Absolutely Clueless Media…

My two fave moments so far.  An AP headline that reads “Pope Comes Out Against Abortion” (duh) and this piece of complete bafflement from the Country that Used to be England:

Pope Francis encouraged Catholic doctors to refuse to perform abortions today in a bizarre U-turn …

Seriously.  A college-educated person spoke of the Pope reiterating opposition to abortion as a “bizarre U-turn”.  You really don’t need to read the rest.  It’s embarrassing how illiterate our Beer and Shampoo Purveyors are.
